Forest Fire Weather Damage

Forest Fire Weather DamageForest fires have many causes including Santa Anna winds in Southern California or lightning caused by thunderstorms. Questions that may be asked when researching the cause of the fire are:

  • What direction did the fire spread?
  • Why did it spread?
  • What type of weather preceded the forest fire?

As part of our historical weather analysis services, our meteorologists look at historical weather data and upper atmospheric weather maps to help determine the cause of the forest fire. In addition, our forensic weather team looks at the micro weather patterns that are created by a big forest fire.
